Available near Sandusky, Ohio. It started, ran, and overheated eventually, 
so I parked it. Tested for ehaust gas leakage into coolant was positive. 
Drained the coolant and parked the car, pending evaluation of problem and 
cost to fix. Vehicle is now a rolling chassis on good tires.

This car is probably best described now as a rolling parts car. Good glass, 
5 spd diesel tranny, special engine block with oil squirters to cool 
pistons, good turbo, turbo injector pump, injectors, glow plugs, pistons, 
rods, crank, alternator, radiator, recent new coolant hoses and fittings, 
special oil filter housing and oil pan, wiper motor and parts. Cabin seats 
& door panels in good condition (original fabric also appeared in Porsche 

Needs brakes, shocks, front fender rust work around wheel wells, grill, 
probably a head milling and a head gasket. AC doesn't work.

Price is $300.  I could get that much by scraping it, but the parts are 
rare and worth many times that much. Somebody could part it out and get a 
good return on the investment, so I want to offer it to the diesel 
community first.
